I have all of 30 seconds to post (work is kicking my butt), but I thought this should be posted --
Tonight is the National Book Critic Circle award readings. It's open to the public, but I also can't find anywhere that tells us who's reading ("check back later!" the website tells me brightly). But it's free, so worth it to go, possibly. Plus, my girl Edwidge was nominated, as well as Junot Diaz who we all know I think is wonderful. :)
